food tech

Y5 made sugar mice today - they've been looking at 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl and have embarked on a short quest to produce their own sweets, which they hope, at a future date, to recreate and sell to their schoolmates. Mixing the icing sugar into a paste was tricky, the plastic spoons we used weren't really up to the task. Must put metal spoons at the top of my next shopping list - all the school ones seem to have disappeared.

Shaping wasn't too bad,

even though the end result looked a bit flat!

We used chocolate sticks for the tails (we couldn't find any liquorice laces in the local shop), white chocolate buttons for ears and raisins for eyes. Mmmmmm, tasty!
